SADIE'S PLACE - 6"x8" oil on board

Posted by Picasa
This beautiful little cottage is so typical of 'border houses' (places close to England). The big surprise for me was to find that they are PAINTED and not timbered as I had thought.
Following on from the recent painting of the Llanfair Road ... the road leads eventually to the magnificent Gregynog Hall. The outside fascia is one splendid spread of black & white timber work. Closer inspection shows that it is again black & white paintwork, but this time on concrete. This was at a time when concrete was being rediscovered from as far back as the great 'concrete users', the Romans. See! - it always pays to check.
